The mission of Lakeland’s Planning & Zoning division is to plan for the future while preserving the past, ensuring a sustainable and prosperous community.
City planners work closely with businesses, residents, landowners, and stakeholders to ensure that adequate infrastructure and services are available to support new development. The department reviews projects and provides expertise and recommendations to the Planning & Zoning Board, the Historic Preservation Board, the Zoning Board of Adjustments & Appeals, and the City Commission.
Contact the Planner-On-Demand for any questions about land use and zoning at your convenience and without the need for an appointment. You can speak with a planner by phone (863-834-7526) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
